Determine the Risk of Progression to CKD

Determining the probability of kidney failure may be useful for patient and provider communication, triage and management of nephrology referrals and timing of dialysis access placement and living related kidney transplant. This four variable equation accurately predicts the 2 and 5 year probability of treated kidney failure (dialysis or transplantation) in patients with CKD stage 3-5.

Risk of recurrent Stone Disease

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have created a handy tool called Recurrence Of Kidney Stone (ROKS) model for public use that can help determine if you’ll have a recurring problem with kidney stones.  The online calculator uses a number of factors about a person’s lifestyle and health history to determine if they are at risk for the issue again after experiencing it once.
